 Dick, that sounds like a good solution.
 We cant anticipate every possible symbol in an OS, so this seems like
 a NOTABUG in Mono (if anything, a bug should be filed at Apple about
 this issue in their toolchain).

+Hmmm, that "solution" sounds really strange to me, and it's easy to anticipate that other 
+developers will have similar problems. To me it's a design weakness to use a symbol which 
+is already present in a system API of the target OS.
+It's clear that i could recompile mono using my own definitions but it's not a good option. 
+My goal is to ship an application in binary form which works for normal users with their 
+normal Mono installation under OSX (and other platforms where this is already working).
+The only workaround would be to provide a tweaked private mono framework inside the 
+application bundle. Doesn't sound very elegant to me.
